SG v Hewitt [2012] EWCA Civ 1053

Road Traffic Accident - Part 36 offer - Costs

Court of Appeal (Civil Division): Pill LJ, Arden LJ and Black LJ

2 August 2012


A child claimant who accepted a defendant's Part 36 offer after the 21-day period of acceptance did not have to pay the defendant's costs since it was not possible to predict what impact the claimant's injury would have until the claimant matured and therefore the Part 36 offer could not have been accepted sooner.
